Risotto & Mushrooms, I Hope You Are Well, News and Tears are tracks composed in October/November 2009 ... memory of a meeting and a concert with MCVulcano, AQM Abhorrent and Beauty ... sounds refer to an atmosphere of intense knowledge and friendship, an exchange of lives in another possible world: the world of sounds. Lullaby is a track composed in December 2009… an attempt to expand a quartet of violas and cellos… Oh, my dear love! Is a sentimental research into sounds… each sound...

"I use the same modus operandi for most of my albums (except the ones that are composed): I lay some free improvised moods (usually on rhythm instruments) that serve as the frame or background for the rest of the piece... I call this process ¨real time compositions¨ as I never have any ideas or plans before the actual recording starts... When I feel that the group or orchestral feelings reflect the mood I stop adding new layers or instruments... On my solo guitar or piano sets &...

"parede que me toca" reunites three works: "mirrita": From the sound of the machine, other sounds are perceived as organic. They are not, but the machine is built by man. The silence interrupts the machine. The animal deflagrates. It challenges it but it is not freed from it. The machine is there. So is the human; "comoção": It begins with a blow that turns into a wave of noise. Another comes. The noise reveals itself human and makes us feel something;...

After the first album, Radio for the Daydreamers have worked on defining their sound much more and have tried to create a balance of different elements(/genres/styles/whathaveyou) of music. We have collaborated with some amazing artists recently, and have thence created "Praying for the be(a)st", a tryptich following a creative non-fiction story of a faustian character.

“This is my first album devoted purely to field recordings. Talmenka is the name of the river in Altai Region and a village that stands on it. It's been a very inspiring place for me, surrounded by the woods, lakes and two rivers. So here is a bunch of tracks I recorded on my several trips there. I am sure next time I will come up with something more conceptual, but meanwhile I wanted to share a few local frequencies that are more like a sound diary of last summer.

"The idea here is to create naïve music with an avant-garde edge. About half the tracks are essentially songs--short pieces with melodies and repeating sections--but made with extremely harsh sounds. They're melodic noise, so to speak. The other half are also noisy, but longer and free-form with no structure at all other their own sonic personalities, and the use of very simple kraut-rock influenced beats.

"The first four tracks on Major Monk Plus 3 are music-oriented sound collages that loosely follow an anti-rationalist simian protagonist as he pursues his life-long vendetta against a group of prim'e numbers who run a mustard factory.

This album was dedicated to those days in our lives that we forgot because we thought they were irrelevant. This is meant to be heard by people who believe in magic and people who believe in stories. Chaos ensues. We shall not pray to any god, but to our own. We shall love people who dream and people who need a little more gasoline. Reject the beauty, before it dare rejects you.

"Overall, it is very hard for me to describe just how I feel about Marc Broude’s “Medicine”. Though I do listen to a lot of experimental music, this album has taken me to a new dimension that I just can’t fully comprehend.

Nature Circuit’s first “album,” Fuck This, Tilted Field, mixes elements of previous releases (most notably the power electronics of Songs in the Key of Death) with many new ideas and sound sources, producing a much wider range of textures. The range of the album is notable as well in that it mixes “heavier” tracks with quieter pieces. Recommended to fans of noise, power electronics, drone, and depressing music in general.

"As you may know, Subterrestrial is largely influenced by hollow earth theories, but also conspiracy theories, unexplainable phenomenon and the mysteries of the universe.
